"Mon cher ami, Je ne saurais assez vous remercier de votre magnifique `préface`. Elle m'a profondement ému. Ce que je pourrais lui reprocher, c`est que vraiment elle est trop belle, trop au-dessus de mes modestes mérites. Venant de vous elle ne m`a pourtant pas surpris - ni par la beauté de sa forme, ni par la générosité du sentiment qui l`a inspirée. Merci ! De tout coeur votre - I J Paderewski" Translated: My dear friend, I can not thank you enough for your magnificent `Foreword`. I was very touched. What I could blame him is that it really is too beautiful and too much beyond my modest merit. Since it comes from you, it did not surprise me too much - neither by the beauty of its form nor by the generosity of the feeling that inspired it. Thank you ! - wholeheartedly yours - I J Paderewski"
